As usual, i was taking a train.
I was on my way to meet my father's friend.
I was sitting next to a guy with a black shirt, brown shoes.

We reached Toa Payoh already.
That guy was there. Sitting beside me.
We were on our way to Novena.
It was just one stop to Novena.

After the door was opened at toa payoh mrt.
Soon, this guy next to me was talking with his friend via phone.
He told his friend that he was in mrt, bla bla bla...
I took off my glasses for a few second and realize that there is no more sound.
I glanced to where he sat. He wasn't there.
And we haven't reached Novena yet.

I tried to look for him.
I told myself.
Maybe he was standing near the door, or maybe he moved to another seat.
Yet i cannot find him.

He was just disappeared.

I don't know how and why.

He knows what is happening today!

Ada kalanya


Sering kali justru..
kekuatan kita nggak cukup kuat untuk menopang diri kita

apa yang nggak pernah kita pikirkan.


bukan cuman hal yang baik2 saja :)

tp bahkan hal yg menurut kita kurang - dan bahkan mungkin jauuuuh dari kata - baik.

Cuman pengen bilang aja.
HE knows and He knows and He knows what is happening NOW!

Dia ga tinggal diam!

Dia ga akan membiarkan kita jatuh tergeletak.

Kalo kamu udah pernah menghitung kebaikan Tuhan di dalam hidupmu.
Hitunglah sekali lagi!

Maka kamu akan dapat bersyukur bahwa Dia baik, regardless what is happening today :)

Ecc 3:11
He has made everything beautiful in its time. He also has planted eternity in men's hearts and minds [a divinely implanted sense of a purpose working through the ages which nothing under the sun but God alone can satisfy], yet so that men cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end.

♥ mgkn kita ga tau kenapa, tapi PASTI Tuhan tahu kok

piece by piece

God made my life complete when I placed all the pieces before him.
~psalms 18:20a

Its true. God made our life complete when we are willing to place all of the pieces before him.

See, from pieces, He can make the complete scenery for us. :)

humble yet sharp-sighted

I love guitar.
Though i cannot play it well. ^-^
But one thing that i know.
It can be played with other instrument, as well as played solo.

It has a wide variation.
6-string is the most general, but four-, seven-, eight-, nine-, ten-, eleven-, twelve-, thirteen- and eighteen-string guitars are also available.
Mine: 6 strings off course.

Guitar is one of the music instrument that can be found easily.
Though it can be played in the well-known Concert Hall by outstanding musician,
Yet it also can be played in the street by street musician (or even "pengamen").
You can find guitar in any caste.

Well, i am not a guitar expert :P
Neither do I want to explain about guitar like an expert.

I just want to share that today i was reminded by this verse.

Proverbs 17: 18
It’s stupid to try to get something for nothing,
or run up huge bills you can never pay. (MSG)

Another version:
A man devoid of understanding shakes hands in a pledge,
And becomes surety for his friend.

A man void of good sense gives a pledge and becomes security for another in the presence of his neighbor. (AMP)

Sometimes, life tempted us to play as a "good samaritan".
Become a hero for others without knowing what's going on.

If we know nothing, it's stupid to be involved in someone else matter, then even gives a pledge a becomes a security for another.

What do you really want to achieve by giving a pledge?
What do you really want to achieve by becomes security for another?
Is it because of your pride?
Is it because you want to play a "good samaritan" thus people will recognise you as one?
Is it because we are so boastful about ourselves?

Lately i have been reminded "Be humble dear, be humble. HUMILITY. Write down in your heart that you have to learn to be humble".

It might be simple. But it can be everything.
We might heard it often. But so hard to live in it.
Let our humility can be found in any caste as well.
Not only when we are around the poor (in the street), but we also can managed our humility around the rich (in the well-known place).

Another reminder today :
Our life, has a purpose.
Everything has a purpose.
Whatever we do now, it's because we want to achieve something.

Just like i bought my guitar, was actually as a tool to worship Him.
*though i rarely use it lately. (doh) i really being reminded to worship Him more, no matter what*

We need to know, what we want to get.
We need to set a goal in our life.
Thus everything we do, will take us closer to the goal itself.

It might be take days, weeks, months, or even years.
But as you live in your dreams, whatever you do will take u closer to the goal.

Set up your goal now!


humble doesn't mean that you are not smart!
humble doesn't mean that you are being abused by others.
humble doesn't mean that you are being used by others.

dusty yet cleansed
rusty yet beautiful
nasty yet forgiven

a lot of things happened.
be it sad or happy.

i feel grateful

for the dreams You've given to me
for the vision that You've let me see
for ALL the things

be it sad or happy

am grateful forever to be your precious daughter.

there's no word i can write here to show how overwhelm i am in your guidance.
there's no song i can sing to praise Your Name on high.
there's nothing i can do to win Your Heart because You have given Your heart at the first place - Your only Son - to save me.

Thank You Lord Jesus.

♥ u much much much more....

mom ~ on ur day

I said "I love u" yet I hurt u so many times
I said "I miss u" yet there is none of my acts reflected it
I said "I want to lift ur burden up" yet I make it heavier even more

Mom, I have no idea how many drops of tears had been poured out because of me
Still u love me so

I cannot count how many times I had rejected u and ur love
Still u always be there when I need u most

Just being able to see u, broken my cold heart into pieces
And all I can do is crying and crying and become ur lil baby once more

Thank u for being a wonderful and strong mom

I luv u mom
Dedicate to all moms in the world.

tiga ratus enam puluh lima

365 hari telah kita lalui
Ada saat dimana tangis menyeruak
Ada saat dimana tawa menggema
Ada saat dimana teriak tak lagi bersuara

Terima kasih telah menjadi bagian dalam hari-hari tersebut
Terima kasih telah mengisi 365 hari ku..

kuharap di hari-hari selanjutnya
Di menit menit dan bahkan detik-detik selanjutnya
Kita akan sama-sama membagi mimpi, mengejar impian kita, dan menghidupi impian tersebut..

Mari sambut 2010 dg impian baru, pikiran yang baru dan hati yang baru...

~luv in Christ always~
